Vi Daley's office announced via press release that the improvements "include restoration of historic panels, goose-neck lights, wrought iron on Armitage and brick work colored to match neighboring buildings. " It also noted, "The Armitage Station is the only one on the Brown Line that is located within a national and local landmark district."
Inside Lincoln Park reports Alderman Daley as saying the following:
I would like to thank the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency for making themselves available on very short notice. Their attention to this proposal was essential. I would also like to recognize the residents and businesses around the Armitage Station who fought to insure that this station would retain the historic character that represents this great neighborhood.
It's always nice when there's a win like this. Nice work everyone.
